BARCELONA - SPAIN

I've been meaning to write this post for ages. so here we are - nothing like a monday night to reminisce.
SPAIN SPAIN SPAIN! What a dream it was. Yes, we did only explore Barcelona, but I think the city proved a pretty good indication of the general vibe of Spain. We stayed in the loveliest Bed and Breakfast called 'Casa de Billy' which I would recommend to anyone. Super intimate and no details went amiss.
 Barcelona in some ways felt like a modern Paris, still exploding with history and amazing architecture but also brimming with young people and culture. There was a few adventures along the way - It took Matt and I are fair while to figure out the dining situation ha. I don't think we truly thought tapas was going to be quite so 'real'. We were so pumped on deep fried camembert and mini everything's at the start till we realised we had to order about 23 quantities of the same dish to fill any hint of hunger. Every new country usually involves a dining mishap I reckon though!

AND exploring Antoni Gaudi's trail of creations through Barcelona was the best. He is Spain's most famous architect paving his own way with gothic art and nature influenced styling. His most famous work, the Sagrada Familia, doesn't seem real in actual life. I reckon it kinda looks like this crazy melting cake from the outside. So hectic that the construction of it began in 1882 and it's still not finished!!! That is one biiig building project.

Enjoy the snaps.

and go to Spain. x
